What is Cow Plop Bingo?
CowThis is definitely our most interesting fundraiser, and has the potential of having a great result for you too!

On October 17th, we make a grid on the soccer fields. We then invite a neighboring cow to come and take a walk, eat some grain and deposit onto our field. Wherever the cow decides to “plop” is where someone wins big bucks!

So, how do we know who wins? We ask each student to sell as many “squares” as they can. These squares are sold @ $10 each or 3 for $25. On the day of the event, each square will be marked by a number which corresponds with a name who bought that square.

Whichever number is decorated with, the unmentionable, will win anywhere from $500-$1000.

The more squares sold, the bigger the pot for the winner as well as the funds for PTO sponsored Activities. So Manoa….let’s get selling! You can pick up your square selling form after school all this week or download the form by clicking “Cow Plop Bingo” form under Fund Raising & Support on the right-hand navigator on this site.

There are 3 different ways to support Manoa PTO for this event:

1. Sell, Sell, Sell those Cow Plop Plots!

2. Sign up and volunteer for the event!

This event is a great way to get involved, meet your Manoa neighbors and make our school an even better experience for our children.

Thank you in advance!
